Life is more complex and unpredictable than ever. Things are changing so drastically, both personally and globally, that often it's overwhelming, to say the least. Some of you may be deeply concerned about the economy, the threats to our security at home and abroad, the environment or education. Others of you may have serious family, work, or health issues or a combination of all these. But how often do you think about your own Self? How concerned are you about your own inner well-being? How can you connect with your needs and the desires of your heart? What changes need to be made within you? What can you do to truly make a difference; to step out of hopelessness into empowerment?
It has been my mission and passion for the past 25 years to assist others in personal empowerment. Being athletic in nature combined with my love of health and vitality, I initially did this through the fitness industry teaching group exercise classes ranging from step aerobics, spinning, kick-boxing, body sculpting, Pilates to yoga. I owned and operated a fitness studio for several years and personally trained within people's homes. While working with the physical aspect of an individual has been very gratifying, I always had a strong desire to understand in a deeper sense, "Who are we? What makes us truly happy? What is it that really empowers and makes us feel better about ourselves?" What I have found is that feeling better about you and your personal empowerment is so much more than just your physical body, mentality or the roles you play in life. There's another side of you -- a 'spiritual' side, your soul.
To understand all of who we are, I began a spiritual and psychological quest. I read every spiritual/personal development book, attended every spiritual/motivational lecture and workshop I could find across the country. Equally as strong as my desire to soak in information was my desire to share it effectively. I became certified as a public speaker through two nationally known organizations and became enthralled with the power of the subconscious mind becoming certified in hypnotherapy. I engaged hypnosis, not only for myself, but in my personal training business for weight loss, relaxation, and success. Implementing further practices that focused on spirit; e.g., meditation, journaling, and a healing technique called Reiki, I began experiencing an increased sense of power, unlimited thinking, more self-acceptance, joy and peace in my life. I found more balance in all aspects of myself. My focus became less external and more internal realizing that all answers actually do lie within. Within I found unconditional love for myself which enabled me to love others more freely. Understanding the relationship between one's inner and outer world is what dramatically changed my life.
We, as a civilization, are at a crossroad. We can no longer ignore the voice of our souls. They are in need of deep nourishment and expression. Without these, it will be difficult to adjust and cope in these transforming times. Now is the time to once and for all let go of the negative thoughts and beliefs that keep us stuck in a life we truly don't want or have succumbed to just to survive and not thrive. Now is the time to align the quality of our thinking with the needs of our bodies and the desires of our hearts. To claim the power that is our birthright that leads to a life of joy, peace, love, and abundance in all ways.
To evolve is to change. To change is to be greater than the environment, It was Mahatma Gandhi who said, "Be the change you wish to see." The world more than ever needs YOU--your talents, joy, light and power; your true Self! Now is the time!
